actively fighting right now. in fact they sort of took a defensive posture on this. i want to show you quickly from our vantage point, this is where it is located actually out on the water. it is a pier that is burning right now and fire crews have to spray water. certainly a lot of access issues and they are bridging in a boat and the coast guard to assist to get this fire fully under control. i want to bring it to you at this point with the crocket fire department. first tell me exactly what is burning here. >> what we have is a very old pier that was once occupied. it is not occupied now. it previously experienced a fire about two years ago. these are the remnants there of and there is still a lot of heavy timbers covered in crease salt and we expect this to burn if we are not able to get lines completely around it. >> this fire does appear to be suspicious given that there was a fire several years ago? >> yes, there are no other sources, there is no electricity and no occupants on the site so it is suspicious and -- suspicious and it will be under investigation. we have no reason t

and say to republicans, you want to reign in defense or control the growth of defense, too, i don't care what the purpose is, but if you're going to mention kids, remind us that they are our future. right now, to your point, charlie, they will be stuck paying some very, very big bills, but, again, it's one thing to convince people of your age, charlie, of that, and another to get the message across to just innocent little kids, but that is going to be a paramount issue because as steve pointed out, it's going to address kids still unborn, that the rate we're going, how do you tell people, charlie, that for generations yet to come, none of this is sustainable, the rate we're going. >> well, i think it's important to frame the argument in terms of morality. the president mentioned morality, that it's the moral thing to do to get gun control. is it moral to spend children's morn before they had a chance to vote. is it moral to spend social security trust fund if the money does not exist? frame a moral pretext rather than a mathematic one. young people might be able to relate to that. they w
disingenuous, and i'm being polite. if anybody was listening to the defense appropriation bill at the end of last year, just before they let us go over the fiscal cliff, republicans added $20 billion more than what the president asked for for the defense appropriation bill. this is the 20% there are going to have to cut during sequestration. now the defense department, if you keep the continuing resolution versus making a budget, they will get $680 billion this year. $20 billion more than what they ask for. yet they cannot pass a sandy bill. america, wake up. republicans that are in charge, and i guess you ququality party, they're just out to take our money. the poor and disenfranchised, they just laugh and say get a job, and they will not give you a job. host: on twitter -- in michigan on the independent line is terry. caller: good morning and thank you for taking my call and for having a program. i just want to say that i do think, from the perspective of spending, there has been a lot of conversation on the bell avenue side and the president did not get what he wanted -- on the revenue
quarterback matt ryan and try to man handle atlanta's three big receivers, but on the sidelines the defense can turn into cap fans. the 49ers defense practiced each week with colin kaepernick. last week he ran for an nfl quarterback record 189 yards and two touchdowns, something that caught everybody's attention. >> the way he controls the offense not surprising. we see it all the time. we do get to watch it once we settle down and do what we do on defense and watch it on jumbotron. >> that's more than fast, man. >> there's always something he do that's surprising. his talent is elite. the sky is the limit for him. i'm pretty sure we'll be seeing more and more stuff he can do that's going to surprise everybody. >> of course, saturday's coverage starts with it our own ktvu nfc championship pregame show at 9:30 p.m., kickoff 12:05 p.m. capped off with our live after show right here on ktvu fox 2. >>> oakland athletics came to terms on one year deals with jerry blevins and brandon moss who belted 21 homers in 81 games. it was a big day for buster posey, the future hall of fame catcher in new y
. >> congress authorizes spending. they order me to spend. they tell me you need to fund our defense department, at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that you are paying to care for our veterans. they lay all of this out for me. and because they have the spending power. and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. separately, they also have to authorize the raising of the debt ceiling in order to make sure that those bills are paid. and so what congress can't do is tell me to spend x, and then say but we're not going to give you the authority to go ahead and pay the bills. >> the economist made a laundry list of what would happen if congressional republicans refused to raise the debt limit. failure to raise the debt ceiling would force immediate spending cuts equal for 6% of gdp. not only would that threaten to send the economy back into recession, it would also deprive many of money needed to meet their own obligations, setting off a chain reaction of defaults that could incite investors to dump their holdings, driving up
to being secretary of defense. they are very close and i don't know that obama had a deep relationship with him, but there other ways in which his fingerprints are on the president's policies and afghanistan won the argument. two things here i would add on guns specifically. biden in a way is -- a messenger for obama and sectors that may not trust him. he's got working class roots from industrial pennsylvania. he's catholic. i guess that the white house sees him as a messenger to people who might be skeptical and have ideas of what obama's agenda is and that biden could be a better messenger on this. i hate to bring up the 2016 number, but i think you may see more opportunities for biden to step out and prove himself in his own standing if he wants to run for president. >> the one thing i would add is nobody understands personal tragedy and is able to speak to that in an emotional compelling way as joe biden. going back to what you were saying about very little hope of this package or really much of anything, passing it is republican house. what do you think the white house strategy is
the trajectory. it is not 50 billion from defense spending there. it would have an impact in our capability in context with the military but the only way you get serious and change the trajectory of the debt is to have entitlement reform. >> what does that take? we are europe and finally we have to do something about it? >> i think charles's point this is a president who wouldn't be uncomfortable with gdp spending. for him the way he sees the proper role of government that doesn't seem outrageous even though the historical norm is 20 percent. it is not something that would be a problem. it drags more on the economy now h than it has at that point. you heard democrats talk about that you need another couple interesting in order to avoid the 90 percent threshold. ab september that i don't see that he is going to be the one to lead on those issues. >> second term, though, this is what we are talking about. second term. you are talking about the president he has an opportunity to do something the art sent employees have never had a chance to take a risk go big go bold. one of those things has t
the defense industry, which is not to say that there aren't plenty of democrats whose bread is not being buttered by defense contractors, but if you look down at the breakdown of sequester cuts, defense gets hit with $55 billion in cuts, but they are much more severe, and as dave wood from the huffington post has said, it's like taking a meat clever to the defense industry. the nondefense cuts, 55 billion, same amount, but social security, retirement, veterans medicaid, snap, food stamps and jobless benefits are all exempt, steve. >> i think there's a sort of story here now that's been two years in the making where at some point this is going to have to come to a head. at some point president obama is going to have to call the bluff of the republicans. there were battles over continuing resolutions to fund the government in 2011. there was a summer of 2011 with the debt ceiling. there was the super committee. they were setting up the fiscal cliff. now we've got continuing resolution in march. now we've got the sequester, march 1st. now we've got debt ceiling all over again. one of these
and inflation all over the place. this year it's with cyclical growth, not defensive growth. not just getting paid to wait but it's cyclical growth right now. >> thank you, guys. >> good to see you. >> terry, welcome back. good to see you. >> the dow going out near the highs of the day, but, again, it's not setting the world on fire but some of the other averages are doing very well and it's just a day when apple is going to close below $500 a share for the first time in almost a year. the dow up 27 points. that's the first hour of the closing bell. here's the second hour now with maria. i'll see you tomorrow. >> and it is 4:00 on wall street. do you know where your money is? welcome back to the "closing bell." i'm maria bartiromo on the floor of the new york stock exchange. the dow jones industrial average closing higher today for a fifth session in a row. take a look at how we're settling out on the street tonight and the market does close at the highs of the afternoon and the dow is down 61 points earlier today. at the close, up 27 points. about a quarter of a percent higher at 13,534. nas

on the waterfront and next to the sugar factory. crews caught this fire defensively from the shoreline spraying water on it from the shore and eventually got the boat in there to find out. a battalion chief i talked to said the fire appears suspicious for a number of reasons. >> there's nobody living on the pier. there are no sources of electricity or other obvious sources of ignition. >> reporter: on top of that, there was also another fire at this same pier two years ago, according to firefighters. i asked the battalion chief this morning if transients may have been camping out inside this structure on the pier this morning. he said that's certainly a possibility that will be looked into it as arson investigators move in and try to figure out exactly what sparked this fire this morning. we bring you out here live. fire are yous -- crews are still putting water on some of the hot spots on the pier that caught fire. i also want to mention this did have an impact on the amtrak and southern train line. trains were stopped but they are now moving again. alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> 7:03.

on these issues to look for policies to lead us forward. >> the speech is being interpreted as a defense of liberalism. i saw it as him saying these are issues to talk about. he wasn't outlining specific means of confronting them. wasn't saying government has to solve all the problems, but he was saying we can no longer deny this is a problem, this is a problem, and that this is a problem, and we need to come together and do something about it. it was a progressive vision, but it wasn't a big government speech. >> i think it was a personal statement of what he believed and what he valued. this wasn't written by a bunch of speechwriters, at least the final edition was pure him. stephanie, it's great to have you on. i see why you're a leader, and i can pronounce your name. stephanie schriock from butte, montana, if you're wondering where that nonaccent came from. thank you, sam stein. i come from where we have one. >>> coming up, the neocon game. one of president obama's loudest messages was no more perpetual wars. that's a rebuke to the hawkish crowd, and these days the war they're itchin
's definitely an impediment to a potential case. and, certainly, if you go before a jury, the defense lawyers can make a big point about the fact that, "you were there. you knew about it. why didn't you do anything at the time? now you're coming after them." >> in fact, former lehman ceo richard fuld seemed too be trying out that defense when he testified before congress in 2008. >> throughout 2008, the s.e.c. and the federal reserve conducted regular and, at times, daily oversight of our business and our balance sheet. they saw what we saw in real time. >> let's just assume for a moment that anton valukas' findings are true. i mean, isn't this just a free ticket for executives to say, "well, look. you know, lehman did so-and-so, and nothing happened to them." >> right, no, i think absolutely, that's a serious problem. i mean, obviously, there has been a tremendous financial crisis. the people who engaged in improper behavior need to be punished. i think it's critical for the s.e.c. to go after not just companies, but also individuals, where they have the evidence to do so. >> when lehman's b
